You Scratch Behind Our Ears, And We’ll Scratch Behind Yours

Looky here – Do you like CJSR? Do you like the 68Comeback Special? Do you like art? Do you like Raymond Biesinger? Do you like cats?

I’m asking for a darn good reason, and I hope I know what your answer is. CJSR-FM is currently rocking our way through our 2014 FunDrive – goal, $130K – and coming up on Thursday, October 2, 2014, from 3 to 5 pm, the 68Comeback Special will host our second of two fundrive shows.

There’s about 20 bazillion reasons to support CJSR, and Tom and I will be offering up as many as we can to convince you that supporting CJSR is something you personally want to do. Some of those reasons will be high falutin’, some will be decidedly middlebrow, some will be downright realistic and practical, like our foreign policy. And some will have to do with exciting draws for fantastic prizes.

For example, our friend and perennial supporter, Raymond Biesinger, has offered up THIS as an incentive to donate, his latest and greatest print, first entitled Feline Anatomy, first run of the edition, framed no less. We will be drawing for it just before five o’clock, from the names of all those who pledged to CJSR via 68Comeback on last week and this week’s show. You could be the one. Tune in this Thursday, and spend some time practicing getting your wallet out before then.

 

Monday, 68Comeback, Tuesday, 68Comeback…

On the August 28, 2014 edition of the 68Comeback Special, our hate-on for wasps continued unabated. We found that Tiny Tim can’t always be what we want or need him to be, but Brian Setzer can, so long as what we want or need is rockabilly. We checked our decade-privilege and celebrated a Sun Ra milestone. There is absolutely nothing else that we could have done, and if you listened, then you know that.
